There is a small boy in my day care named Constantine. His parents are I believe Turkish, and they always call him by his nickname, Costa. He calls himself that too. I love Costa as a nickname for Constantine, it’s a sweet nickname to a strong and handsome name!

I love Constantine. It is the name of my gorgeous, amazing husband, who is of French-Romanian origin. I call him Const as my own personal nickname for him, but he allows no nicknames from anyone else, and very few people have ever even attempted to give him one. One of our sons is named Costin, after him. To me, there is no more perfect name.

Personal experiences with the name Gus:
Our son’s name is actually August, but we call him Gus. Everywhere I go-people stop me and say,”Did you just say Gus? OMG!!!! That is sooooo cute!!!!” We get it all the time. We know several little guys (5 and under) with the name. It must be another of those ‘old’ names that are making a comeback….
